About Reactec

Reactec has a reputation for delivering trusted solutions through an innovative approach to challenges.

Established in 2001 as a spin- out from Edinburgh University, Reactec started out as a vibration engineering consultancy firm with a difference: not only did it consult on and provide advice to vibration problems; it also delivered practical onsite solutions. This unique service proved most successful with major blue chip companies seeking our expertise to solve their vibration issues. Although dealing with many differing sectors, Reactec Consultancy developed particular solutions for the Renewable Energy sector (particularly wind and marine).

Upon the HSE’s release of the Control of Vibrations at Work Regulations 2005; Reactec engineers commenced development of a hi-tech yet practical solution, which would provide total health protection for the worker as well as real cost benefits for the employer. Using our vast engineering and vibration knowledge and experience: the HAVmeter was developed.

Since being launched into the marketplace in 2008, the HAVmeter has been proven as the system of choice for companies serious about the health of their workers and is now established as the global market- leader in Hand Arm Vibration monitoring. Key to the HAVmeter’s success has been the automated approach to report generation and the accuracy and detail obtained from using the HAVmeter to monitor and protect workers’ HAV exposure. Proving particularly successful with top- end companies in all HAV related sectors, the HAVmeter is fast becoming the industry standard by which all other solutions are measured.

GAP Group - Malcolm Campbell, Health & Safety Manager

“We’ve been working with the HAVmeter system for the past few years as part of our ongoing commitment to reducing hand arm vibration injuries. It is an impressive tool that provides the best way to monitor vibration levels and ensure HSE levels are not exceeded – which is why are now able to program and install the HAVmeter tags on tools in all of our UK depots.”
